Animography Monthly No. 8: ‘Magnus’

Animography Monthly is a monthly recurring animation project to explore the use of animated typefaces. Joe Donaldson teamed up with Jay Quercia to take on number 8 in this series, which resulted in a film noir style short.

‘Magnus is a short period piece about a righteous detective who struggles with the consequences of his actions as his reality begins to unravel. Sometimes even greatness can’t save you…’
